Swamp Rising

To play, press and hold the enter key. To stop, release the enter key.

As the water rises,

Who will be left?

Who will be cared for?

As the water rises

Seeping through the grass,

Up to my toes

As the waters rise,

Dreaming of higher ground


Three feet images from this series were shown at the Ogden Museum as part of the Louisiana Contemporary 2019. Swamp Rising raises environmental and political concerns that Louisiana residents and all coastal communities across the globe are now facing. The work questions who is most likely to be saved and who is not, because of race and economic resources. As is the question of which coastal communities are realistically worth saving for future generations. My hope is to create sacred space, deepening our awareness of the delicate balance between nature, human beings, and the encroaching water mass.
